Tottenham Hotspur: Agent claims Spurs could sign Romelu Lukaku

Tottenham Hotspur: Agent claims Spurs could sign Romelu Lukaku -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

An agent has claimed that Romelu Lukaku could now sign for Tottenham Hotspur in the January transfer window.

The Lowdown: Bust-up

The news of the bust-up between Lukaku and Thomas Tuchel over an interview that the former did claiming that he was unhappy at Stamford Bridge has been widely reported, and the German manager decided to drop him for their 2-2 draw at home to Liverpool in the Premier League because of it.

Should Tottenham sign Lukaku?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Of course, reports of unrest between the player and the club are always going to conjure up rumours of him potentially leaving this month, as the Blues may now look to cash in on the striker that they paid a whopping £103.5m to sign from Inter Milan in the summer.

The Latest: Conte reunion?

Speaking to Stadio Aperto (via TUTTOmercatoWEB), when football agent Giovanni Bia was asked if Lukaku could leave Chelsea, he claimed:

“It seems clear to me, this hustle and bustle is aimed at returning to his old coach Antonio Conte. But maybe I’m wrong…”

The Verdict: Get it done

If Conte continues to play his preferred 3-5-2 system at Spurs, like he did at Inter with Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez up top, then Lukaku would be a perfect fit alongside either Harry Kane or Son Heung-Min.

The Belgium international quite simply shone under him, scoring no fewer than 64 goals and making a further 21 assists in just 95 games in total over all competitions across two seasons at the San Siro (Transfermarkt).

Lukaku is ‘world-class‘ on his day, as Tuchel has pointed out, and when he is in the mood, the striker can really bully defenders, as Alan Shearer has explained previously.

Nonetheless, reuniting the 28-year-old with Conte would be a match made in heaven, but it would all depend on how big of a hit the Blues are willing to take given the fallout from his explosive comments.
